Half life radioactive fossil dating

Worse still, sometimes they want to know how evolutionists use Carbon-14 to date dinosaur fossils!

Radiometric Dating Technologies are presented to the public by evolutionists as utterly reliable clocks for dating earth rocks or biological materials.

Scientists now have accurate methods (see below ) for dating fossils.

methods rely on characteristic faunal and geological patterns to bracket the period when the fossil existed.

For some reason, which I have not yet figured out, at least one person per week has been asking me about the Carbon-14 Radiometric Dating Technique.

They want to know if it is accurate or if it works at all.

Radiocarbon then enters animals as they consume the plants (figure 2).

There are more than 80 such technologies that are claimed to work.

Prior to looking at the many flaws in the Carbon-14 Dating Technique, it should be noted that no radiometric technique is reliable.

Radiocarbon (carbon-14 or C) forms continually today in the earth’s upper atmosphere.

And as far as we know, it has been forming in the earth’s upper atmosphere at least since the Fall, after the atmosphere was made back on Day Two of creation week (part of the expanse, or firmament, described in Genesis 1:6–8). Cosmic rays from outer space are continually bombarding the upper atmosphere of the earth, producing fast-moving neutrons (sub-atomic particles carrying no electric charge) (figure 1).1 These fast-moving neutrons collide with nitrogen-14 atoms, the most abundant element in the upper atmosphere, converting them into radiocarbon (carbon-14) atoms.
